Hime ~ AVM

A very good AMV.

It is found here, and hopefully this author has produced more of the like.

Iran and Syria need to be held accountable.

My own question is, "what is the difference between murder, and hiring a hitman to kill someone, and how does this relate to Iran and Syria, and their relationship with the terrorists."

It seems that the both Iran and Syria supply both money and instructions to the terrorist groups. How is this different from a country hiring a mercenary army to attack another country. Maybe we should take a lesson from this. We could have just hired a mercenary company to attack Iraq, and then claimed that it wasn't us that did it.

Oh wait we already tried that with Cuba once. Strangely none believed we were just a disinterested third party. Why are both Syria and Iran giving a pass now?

Hezbollah and Hamas are both equivilent to a mercenary army in the emply of Syria and Iran. At least when the U.S. tried it we had the sensce to keep it secret. With both Syria and Iran, everyone knows they are doing it. Iraq was very open about his activities in funding the terrorsit groups.

If someone hires a hitman to kill someone, the person who hired the hitman is also guilty of murder. If a county hires a terrorist or mercenary group to attack another country, that country has committed an act of war. Israel is perfectly justified in going after both countries.

What's up with North Korea

So the North Koreans have launched a missile and it failed. They then proceeded to launch another missile into the sea. Then they launched another one. And yet another one was soon launched. This was of course follwed by several more launches of missiles of various types. I'd give you an exact number but I have lost count. Since they are threatening to launch more I think others will soon loose count too.

Ok the first couple yes, scary. Now this is just gettign ridiculous. But hey if they keep this up they will run out of missiles sometime.

It seems to me that the Dear Leader, is just throwing a temper tantrum. Ok, it is a particularly interesting tempur tantrum, at least in the beginning. However, I think most of us are just getting bored and annoyed with it. He is behaving like a kid in a store who throws himself on the ground, and kicks and screams till he gets what he wants.

China is like the mom trying to calm him down. The rest of us are getting irritated, and just want to say to the mom, "hey just smack him." Of course we are all to polite to do this.

Maybe China should just get him a little choo-choo train to play with so he will be quiet again. The rest of us should just ignore N.K. After all the whole point of the tanrtum is to get attention. Nothing would make him madder if we all just said, "awe, how cute" and move on.

The Fourth of July ~ Score Board

The country is now 230 years old.

That would be 11 Score and 10 years ago, *bounce*.

We might not have much history now, but we are still going strong.
It's not the history you have it's what you do with it.

Let's see when we started everyone was still ambievilant about this whole democracy thing. Now even North Korea calls itself a democracy. So truth, justice and the American way. Hee ... superman as a metaphor for America.

From nothing to leading power in the world in 230 years ... ok some in America have success guilt, but we can live with that.

We might not have been perfect in the beginning. Was the liberty bell deliberately sabotaged, so as to express the cracks in liberty in our early nation? But most of us recognize that we are not perfect, and we are trying to improve ourselves.

After all we might be a little bit divided now, but we are doing a heck of a lot better then we were at 4 score and 7. After which we managed to inch a bit more in the right direction. We might not be perfect in the past, but mostly we are looking forward to where we are going not where we have been.

The world pays attention to us. The thing which probably most annoys people in other countries is that we don't really think about them. That is unless they annoy us.
